What is Brachioplasty?
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a procedure to address “flabby underarms.” As the skin in the underarm area loses its elasticity, it begins to sag. This is often seen in patients as they age and especially in those that have lost a considerable amount of weight. Patients find that the amount of loose, redundant skin will actually increase as they lose additional weight. This can lead to rashes and problems finding shirts with sleeves that fit properly.

- Ability to wear sleeveless shirts without feeling self-conscience

- Renewed self-confidence
Who is a Candidate for Brachioplasty?
A brachioplasty is a viable option for those who are in good health, have realistic expectations of the results of the surgery, and suffer from excessive loose and sagging skin due to age or weight loss. Schedule a consultation with Dr. DePerro to learn more about an arm lift and to see how personalized care leads to personalized results.
How is Brachioplasty Performed?
Through well-hidden incisions on the inner portion of the arm, Dr. DePerro is able to remove excess skin and fat from the upper arm and elbow area. This enables him to create a more toned arm with a much more youthful contour. If necessary, liposuction can thin out the arms even further. Patients will normally be asked to wear a compression garment for the first few weeks after surgery. This helps reduce swelling and improves the final contour of the arms. Depending on the demands of your job, you may be able to return to work in as little as 7 to 10 days after surgery. Schedule a consultation with Dr. DePerro to learn more about an arm lift and to see how personalized care leads to personalized results.
